Reason given to call in sick?

This was in the news today: "Woman Fakes Kidnapping to Avoid Work". What is a reason you gave when you didn't want to go to work? (Other than being sick of course).

    As an employer, I have heard excuses ranging from sick pets to car troubles to police issues. I have not heard the fake kidnapping story, so I give her an A for originality.

    What I realized is that people like to take days off when they are not sick, so I combined all of the sick and vacation days in my office to one block of personal days.

    Now, instead of calling in with an excuse, people can take paid days without giving a reason. All they need to do is say that they are taking a personal day.

    "Car won't start." No one in my office wants to drive the 20 miles one way to come and get me and then have to take me home too!
